SPSS / Minitab Academic Requests



Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) offers advanced statistical analysis, a vast library of machine learning algorithms, text analysis, open source extensibility, integration with big data and seamless deployment into applications. Its easy-to-use, flexible and scalable platform makes IBM SPSS accessible to users with all skill levels and outfits projects of all sizes and complexity to help you and your organization to find new opportunities, improve efficiency and minimize risk.

Standard Features

  • Faculty should use this service to request access for an entire class by uploading the Banner generated course enrollment spreadsheet or attached "SPSS Class Roster Request" spreadsheet.  Rosters need to include the class name and section number, student names and either Portal ID or Email addresses.  SPSS/Minitab class accounts will be provided via Azure Virtual Desktop.
  • Please provide rosters via a method where students can be copied and pasted into the system.  This would include Excel or Word formats.  Providing images/screen shots of rosters may result in processing delays.  If the roster provided does not allow copy/paste, students must be looked up and added manually.
  • Rosters of students needing access must be submitted every semester.  Student access will be removed immediately after the final grading deadline has passed.  If a student needs access beyond the final grading deadline, a request will need to be re-submitted.
  • Faculty can also use this service to request access to SPSS with a local Mac installation.

Note: Faculty wishing to have a local installation on their primary Windows computer can install SPSS/Minitab directly from Software Center.  Minitab is not available for Mac installations.

SLA:  You can expect this service to be completed in 5 business days.


  • Only Faculty can request access to SPSS/Minitab
